Life lately has been full of ups and downs and twists and turns. Some days I have laughed at the surprises and some days I have mourned them. Today’s surprise though was nothing short of spectacular in my book! I got home from a morning of dog walking to a large manilla envelope from a company I have been submitting poetry to for years. The process is long. Very long. But today, today was the day the waiting ended(for one project anyway). In 2018 Blue Mountain Arts bought the rights to one of my poems. Today, that poem is published on a greeting card! After 5 long years. Let this be an encouragement to everyone reading this, no matter what you are waiting for. Keep dreaming, keep doing, keep moving forward, and keep pursuing your goals.

PS-if you see this in stores-I’d love to hear about it!
